Pro

I believe all non-human animals are not conscious. They are not capable of subjective thought. All of their actions can be explained by instincts and subconscious reactions.

Con

Animals are awake and aware of their surroundings and have the capability of developing knowledge and personality, therefore they are conscious. Scientists believe we are derived from monkeys because monkeys give cognitive responsive, can learn sign language, and develop communities, as we did in earlier times.
